Property Description

The Mrs James Skinner House, Wallace Neff, FAIAAcclaimed as one of Wallace Neff's finest works, The Mrs James Skinner House is located on a flat 1.8 ac parcel in San Marino's prime Estates Area. Built in 1929 for a Chicago widow who's husband had been a founder of Sears Roebuck, and later owned by JB Van Nuys, this fully gated palatial estate is a prime example of the Italian Period Revival style. Overscaled and grand in design, the 6 BR/9BA house proclaims all the splendor and prominence of the pre-depression 'Golden Age' of architecture. Hand painted ceilings, marble floors, antique Baccarat crystal chandeliers, elaborate wrought iron balconies and banisters and a hand carved stone fountain accentuate the style and grace of the estate. Complementing these original characteristics, the property was extensively updated when it was the Pasadena Showcase House, which added modern conveniences and system upgrades. Together with 2BR guest-house, complete with full kitchen, 6-car garage, N/S lighted tennis court, 50 ft pool, formal gardens and front and rear auto gates, the Skinner House represents one of a few landmark estates in the San Marino / Pasadena area. *Detached 2BR Guesthouse w/full kitchen *Fully gated, automatic gates, front and rear *Partially finished basement with wine cellar *Chauffeur's quarters w/bath(currently gym) *50' lap pool w/automatic cover and spa *6-car garage w/bath *N/S lighted tennis court
